Wagon Trim

Post #1 by tdlund » Wed Oct 04, 2017 2:05 pm

Hi guys!!! I am about to replace the rear quarter window seals on my 62 two door wagon. Do you guys know how I take the stainless trim off around the windows?

That trim slips into a slit in the rubber molding. If you're replacing the old molding, I'd cut the rubber to release the stainless. I just installed the windshield and side glass in my wagon.
Good luck!

Okay I will cut off the old seals. Once the new seals are in the trim should just pop back on?

You do have to cut the seal out to remove that trim. The metal strip on the back of the trim that slips into the slit in the seal has barbs cut into it. Those barbs hold it (very well) in place.
Be careful, I've seen quite a few kinked rear wagon window trim sets.

I'm wanting to pop this trim off but I'm worried about getting it back on. Does anyone have experience with this? I'm calling it the "quarter window post"
